Resolutions 1 and 2 were ordinary resolutions, requiring more than 50 per cent of shareholders' votes to be cast in favour of the resolutions.

 

Where shareholders appointed the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy with discretion as to voting, their votes were cast in favour of the resolutions and their shares have been included in the "votes for" column.

 

A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the percentages of votes cast for and against a resolution.

 

 

Commenting on the result of the General Meeting David Hearn, Chairman of Safestore said:

 

"The Board takes the issue of the Company's Remuneration Policy and specifically executive remuneration very seriously. As a result, we conducted an extensive consultation programme with most of our major shareholders  and Investor Bodies in advance of finalising these resolutions, and I would like to thank them for their engagement and constructive feedback throughout the process.

 

I am therefore delighted to be able to report that with almost 85% of all shares being voted, the two resolutions received overwhelming support with over 97.4% and 98.9% votes in favour respectively."

 

The current issued capital of Safestore Holdings plc is 218,006,528 ordinary shares.
